Small firms get more public sector contract opportunities

Government have boosted plans to enable more small firms to compete for public sector contracts by the addition of four new industries to the procurement pipelines. Details of opportunities in the professional services, financial services, waste management and fire services sectors will now be shared on the Contract Finder website, bringing the total value of published opportunities to £84 billion. Minister for the Cabinet Office, Francis Maude, said: “We are determined to make it easier for firms of all sizes to compete for and win Government business so we can leverage our spending on suppliers to help the economy grow.”
